Thirty-two years have passed since the Lucifer was destroyed. Its reactors were breached causing it go nova as it exited the SOL jump node. Since then the Earth has been cutoff from the rest of the galaxy. A group of rebels, the Neo Terran Front (NTF), have been putting a huge strain on the Terran-Vasudan relations and the new Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance (GTVA). Due to a discovery made by the NTF, an ancient device created by the "Ancients," a portal has been opened leading directly into Shivan space. The Shivans from "The Great War" are back and they are pissed off. You, a member of the human "Lost Generation", will have to answer the call to war.
This is Novachen's upgraded version of the Into the Halls of Valhalla Campaign for FreeSpace2 in Version 1.2.3-Nova.
Into the Halls of Valhalla takes place several years after the Capella incident and the destruction of the SD Nyarhalotep and casts Commander Wesley McCrae, a veteran of the Second Shivan Incursion, now an exiled pilot to a remote system: Tania Australis.
That place is a mess, everything is barely operational, GTVA regulations and control are distant and out of reach. You become a member of an exiled few who are no longer welcomed in the core worlds. Your task is to oversee that the newest manufacturer of GTCv Deimos corvettes does everything as licensed, and provide support to them whenever they need it. Pirate strikes are common in this place and not all cargo transfers reach their destination. As the ex-leader of the 70th Blue Lions elite fighter squadron, it seems you are the only one who can put things in order. Under your leadership, a group of exiled elite pilots form the 77th Blades squadron and start a tour of duty at Tania Australis.
